TOO MUCH OPTIMISM.
A disposition is being evidenced
throughout the state and especially
in the immediate vicinity of the
University to regard the $175,000
appropriation intended for the Uni
versity as already won, and devoted
to the purposes for which it was in
tended, namely the upbuilding of tile
state institution. Possibly this is
due to tlie natural disposition of
mankind to look on the bright side
of things, and possibly to the opti
mistic reports which have appetired
from time to time in the state press,
Ujut as a matter of fact nothing could
bo farther from the truth.
The appropriation is by no means
won, and is, in fact, in more serious
danger of being lost than perhaps
at any other time this fall. There is
still tile attitude of many of the
voters of tile state of wanting to lie
shown, coupled with the intention to
vote against everything that they do
This in itself is commendable, but
it must not lie forgotten that such
an attitude on the part, of the people
makes necessary a much larger
amount of work in the way of an
education campaign in regard to the
iiuostions which will bo settled No
vember 4, than would otherwise be
The optimism of the Oregon sup
porters at the present time, consti
tutes tlie chief danger to the Uni
versity. The natural tendency is to
lie back and take just a little rest
when tilings seem to be going right,
hut now there is no time t< r such a
layoff, nor Is there any time to make
good the loss occasioned by a rest of
h.s Kin.1 To carry the appropria
tion and save the University men
and women oi the future from tils

Nothing is more deceptive to the
athletic dopes!rr titan the element of
comparative scores which constantly
■ utors into any attempt to forecast
the outcome of the -easou's sports.
Nevertheless, the enormous disparity
in results for the ldaiio-Oregon
game and the Washington O. A. U.
contest when compared with the
-cores of last year and with each
other that a hint at least would
seem to be given as to the relative
ability of the two leading teams in
The loss of May is possibly re
sponsible to a large extent, for the
overwhelming defeat sustained by
the O. A. C. eleven Saturday, but In
the two weeks which elapse before
the Albany contest, Dr. Stewart
should easily make good this loss
from his big bunch of substitutes.
The strongest kind of a fight may
be expected from the Corvallis men,
and it is a well assured fact that
their team will have the best of
backing. But in this respect, Ore
gon will not be found wanting, and
it is to be remembered that Oregon
spirit, pure and unadulterated, won
the Albany game. This year—well
it is extremely doubtful if the ful
fillment of that slogan, "Beat Ore
gon,’’ will be found possible.
GLEE CLUB SCHEDULE
Gillette Will Go as Soloist, Man
ager Prophesies the Best
Graduate-Manager Walker and
his assistant, Don-Kice, are making
the final arrangements as fasi as
possible for the Glee club trip north
which will be taken after Christmas,
the Club singing in Hood River on
December 2 6, the first date sched
The Club will go to Boise, Idaho,
this year, which means that this is
the first year the organization has
gone outside of the state on its tours,
i’he most easterly point touched so
far has been Ontario, which is about
one hundred miles this side o.f Boise’.
As added attractions the club will
carry' as soloist Albert Gillette, a
Lugene boy whose voice, according
to Club Director Ralph Lyman, is
an excellent one. “Mr. Gillette's
voice is one of unusual quality and
coupled with his natural ability
makes him a valuable man,” said
Mr. Lyman when speaking of Gil
"If tlie trip north proves profita
ble and conditions are such that a
trip south would be advisable, tlife
club will probably take one this
year,” said Manager Walker yester
day. "If not, the two trips, one
Thanksgiving and the other later will
be the only two.
“The club this year will carry 26
men and it will probably be one of
the best years the club has ever
had," says Walker. "The Agricul
tural College’s club and ours will ex
change concerts this year as they did
last. As soon as the quartette which
is now singing in Portland returns,
which will be the last of the week,
pictures of the club will be taken
and our newspaper campaign will be
started. The big posters which are
annually printed and distributed will
ho spread broadcast, and an effect
ive campaign will be Waged to make
this the biggest year the club has
ever had. The schedule of the trip
has not been completed, but will
soon be definitely announced.”
